The article reports that Integra 5 is supplying software that enables cable operators to offer their new telephony subscribers caller- ID services on the TV or PC. The technology now in a trial with Cox Communications Inc. in Phoenix and deployed by Comporium Communications Inc. in Rock Hill, is not only an example of bundling voice, video and data services on one bill, but of integrating feature sets across platforms to cement customer loyalty. Integra 5's software sits next to the telephone switch within a cable system. The software sees phone calls coming into the system, determines which homes they're headed to, then takes the information about that call phone number and name, if available and sends a signal through the Moving Picture Expert Group transport stream to the TV set, where the information is displayed on a banner that runs along the bottom of the screen.
